Visit Tampa Bay

A Destination Emerges From Neutral

For years Tampa Bay had been getting lost amidst the sunshine sameness of Florida’s destinations.

Without a unique personality, national and international focus groups ranked our hometown poorly – in the middle or worse of every category. How could an area rich with history and lore rank lower in authenticity than the manufactured machine of Orlando? The results were a rally for us and destination leaders to unlock our potential and reclaim prominence with a personality that was true to the spirit of the Bay. And when we made the change, residents and locals couldn’t help but notice.

Our job was more than creating a new logo for a destination.

We had to awaken local pride with an identity that was relevant and authentic.
